This is my second USAPL meet (bench only), and I thought I would post the results. I'm pretty happy, as I got my goal, but I missed my PR at 340. All my lifts are unequipped.
For background, my 1st meet was back in June, I weighed in at 191 lbs. and put up 303lbs. This meet, I weighed in at 187 lbs, opened w/ 315, got my second at 330, and missed 340 (got it half way up, and then it stuck!).
I'm pretty happy w/ what I hit, considering I turned 40 in August, and I'm benching more then I did back in college (just to show you younger guys you can improve w/ age). I've got another meet at the end of March, and 340 WILL fall.
I'd just like to say that I like reading all the posts you guys put out here, and the advice and backing you give is great! I'd like to throw a shout out to Travis for his feedback, and also to BTO (I enjoy your posts, and keep up your great work, big man!).
Congratulation and good luck with your March meet!!
